Thank you to the senior class at Merrimack High School

To the Editor:

The Board of Directors of the John O’Leary Adult Community Center Inc., of Merrimack, wishes to thank the senior class of Merrimack High School for their participation in this year’s Senior Service Day.

On Tuesday, May 20, three students from the class visited the center and performed various clean-up tasks, such as washing windows and mirrors and tidying up the outside. Kelsey Somers, Brianna Jeffery and Justine Coppola all pitched in, scurrying about on ladders and wielding brooms to help make the center sparkle. This effort by the senior class follows a tradition of helping the community in a number of other settings throughout Merrimack besides the center, and which has continued for a number of years; afterwards, the students were treated to a barbecue at the American Legion.

Thanks also to teacher Dave Delisle and the Merrimack High School administration for organizing and supervising this annual activity, which strengthens the bond between the younger and older citizens of our town.

The John O’Leary Adult Center Inc., located at 4 Church St., Merrimack, is the town’s hub of activities for its senior citizens. It is home to the Merrimack Senior Citizen’s Club, is a site for St. Joseph’s Community Services Meals on Wheels program, is host to weekly meetings of the Merrimack Rotary Club and the Bedford Merrimack Honesty Group, a chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous and serves as a rehearsal spot for the Merrimack Community Chorus. The center is also available to rent for private parties and meetings by contacting me at 429-0902.
